Taking the Huarpe name for “sorcerer,” Nunum is a Vines of Mendoza wine blended from Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It's concentrated, smoky and rubbery-smelling, with blackberry, cassis, licorice and herbal scents. Fresh, lush and pure in the mouth, this delivers big doses of blackberry, cassis and licorice flavors. Generous through the finish, this is typical of Argentina's modern style of red blends: ripe and giving. Drink through 2020.
